About

A H Fullwood came to Australia in 1883 and was one of the many artists who, with Arthur Streeton and Tom Roberts, lived at the artists' 'Curlew camp' at Sirius Cove, Mosman in the early 1890s.

Fullwood was encouraged to make etchings by Livingston Hopkins, and made several from the mid 1890s before leaving Australia for twenty years, returning to Sydney permanently in 1920, where he became a founding member of the Australian Painter-Etchers' Society, exhibiting 76 etchings in their first annual exhibition of 1921.

Fullwood produced many etchings in the 1910s-20s, some of them possibly using old drawings; this etching plate may even have been made about that time. A print titled 'Old Mosman, Sydney' was shown at Gayfield Shaw's Art Gallery in 1921, and another, 'Old Bridge, Mosman' in the 1921 Painter-Etchers' annual exhibition. Fullwood also made a watercolour of this view in 1899.
